No doubt Gandhiji was a great leader of the Indian Freedom Struggle, but was there any issue in which he failed?

Gandhiji's failure

Yes, there was.

Gandhiji tried to unite  the Hindus and Muslims, but he failed to do so. He was against the division of the country into India and Pakistan after independence. Couldn't this be counted as a failure?

DID HE COMPLETELY FAIL TO DO SO?

Yeah, it was his biggest failure to fulfil his biggest desire to unite Hindus and Muslims but did he completely fail to do so or was successful to some extent? And what might be the possible reason behind that?

reason for failure

He failed due to the interference of Mr. Jinnah And British. They thought that the such a vast country could not be balanced with the existence of both hindus and muslims. So, they decided to divide India on the basis of communities. AnotheR failure of Gandhi ji was the discrimination between lower caste and upper caste.

He did not completely fail in

He did not completely fail in the caste issue. Gandhiji and Dr. Br Ambetkar created the Puna Pact according to which the lower caste people would get reserved seats in the ellectorate. But the discrimination did not end there. So, I don't think he failed completely in that issue.

And about the Hindu-Muslim unity, Gandhiji and Mr. Jinnah tried to resolve all conflicts in the allparty congress, but all hope of unifying the Muslims and Hindus were dashed when Mr. Jayakar, the leader of the Hindu Mahasabha opposed such a union.
